My fig reference
Fresh cut foliage from the flower shop, optionally juicy grass, green leaves and other green growth species - also very young wood - as well as an increasingly sweeter fruity fig, which acquires a discreet milky-creamy touch in the course of time and awakens coconut associations, make up this fragrance
So the structure is manageable, but the individual impressions are so authentic and finely nuanced that they give me a lasting and always new fragrance pleasure.

The very fresh green of the start remains throughout the whole process, but is gradually dimmed, so that the fragrance does not appear too green on the one hand, but does not become too sweet on the other. Wonderfully balanced. An unusual, but very portable mixture. Fresh green and slightly exotic sweet fruity. Ideal for spring and summer. In autumn for the memory of it :)

The durability is almost solid, the Sillage predominantly rather decent.

Compared to the EdT, the EdP is a bit less fresh and green, but a bit deeper and fuller.

If you like figs, but also the combination of green and fruity and also appreciate naturalness, you will certainly like this fragrance.

Boosting
The first thing you can notice is an intense fruity note, which brings a certain discreet sweetness and is due to the fig.

At the same time the fig is surrounded by an incredibly strong, juicy - green note, which in my opinion is responsible for the fact that the fig does not appear as sweet as one is used to, but one really has the feeling of standing under a fig tree and rubbing its leaves in one's hands
This constellation is perceptible on my skin for 20 minutes before the heart note unfolds.

In the heart note, the fig leaf is only minimally dimmed and thus still clearly perceptible and combines with a very light and sweet, very discreetly creamy nuance, which gives the fragrance a wonderful exotic lightness and comes from the coconut
Meanwhile, you become aware that you are no longer standing, but lying.

Namely on a beautiful grass meadow and you automatically let your hands glide through the fresh grass to give in completely and enjoy the wonderful hours of recharging your strength.

The heart note is perceptible on my skin for 3.5 hours before the base asserts itself.

Now a clear woody note can be perceived, which also contains something soft - resinous and comes from the white cedar wood.

The white cedar wood is accompanied by a fine and subtle creamy and also slightly spicy shade of sandalwood, which provides a beautiful cuddly finish.

In total, the fragrance lasts 7 hours on my skin.

The Sillage is conceived from the outset in such a way that one is perceived very well at an arm's length and this is also maintained 3 hours in such a way, before it reduces itself in quiet steps, until the smell finally completely fades away.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to our perfume "Honk1510" for the sample.
